4 March 2014 - Helen Raw and Avis Quarrell
The involvement and role of Australian women in wartime is many and varied. Come and listen to two Australian women share their story. Helen was ten year’s old when the Second World War was declared and one after the other her four brothers enlisted to serve. Helen was one of the many who sent comfort packs and helped with raising funds for the war effort. At the same time a young twenty year old Avis was learning many new jobs as part of the Australian Women’s Army Service (AWAS).
